World Pathfinder Children’s Fund Inc. and Pathfinder Nepal

World Pathfinder Children’s Fund Inc. is a Canadian corporation and the international support channel for their founding entity, Pathfinder Nepal. Both Pathfinder Nepal and the World Pathfinder Children’s Fund are not-for-profit organizations; Pathfinder Nepal assists children with educational subsidies in the Nepalese villages around the Pokhara valley.

At the operational level, the organization regularly visits the schoolmasters and reviews the recent list of impoverished children forced to drop out of school, they also visit affected children and their families. If a family wishes for a child to continue attending school, the organization provides the tuition and other support such as clothing, school supplies and proper nourishment. Once Pathfinder Nepal provides assistance to a child, they continue supporting the child until graduation or when the family no longer requires their assistance.
